It's pretty easy to get caught up in the big presidential election since that's what we hear the most about. But what about local ballot issues that will have a more direct effect on your live than the presidential election.
I know when I go in to vote I'm always surprised at all the other things on the ballot. Things I should know about and things where my vote will be more important than in a national election.
Thanks to Peter Samore for writing this article that made me think. It's also one of those things I should have figured out long ago.
